    Plant for good air circulation around each plant. Water only at ground level. Some gardeners support nylon stockings between stakes, to act as small slings for the squash. Others plant below black plastic, to keep the soil from splashing on the plant during rainfalls.

      Thanks so much! I had put some marigolds in the garden, but sounds like I may need more. Looks like I’ll be making some slings today! Wish me luck!😉
